95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fruit for this wine comes from a 1.2-hectare site with classic calcareous soils. The 2018 Barolo Brunate is very different from the other two wines in this portfolio. Brunate shows a higher level of intensity and boldness with dark fruit, sweet plum, rusty nail and garden soil. This expression is also best equipped with integrated tannins and freshness to continue on a steady aging trajectory. I love that subtle note of sweetness that appears on the finish.

93 points Decanter
Marengo owns two plots among the highest and more eastern parcels of the Brunate MGA. His 2018 shines for floral complexity of macerated roses with pomegranate and cherry. There is a great concentration of fruit on the palate with more pomegranate and cherry enhanced by sweet spice, dusty tannins and a refreshing velvety finish (despite the 15% of alcohol, which is very well integrated). A Barolo intended for the long haul, despite the lighter vintage.

Jancis Robinson
"Really emphatic, smoky and lively. Lovely stuff! 18/20 points."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Marengo is one of the smallest estates in La Morra who own vineyards in the "Brunate" cru, an immaculately positioned parcel of land that is considered to be one of the grand crus of the Langhe. The vines Marengo use for Brunate are almost 80 years old.
The vineyard has mixed clay and silt soil and south exposition. Harvest happens in September/october, depending on the vintage. Then the wine goes through natural acoholic and malolactic fermentation, before spending 24 months in french barrique. After an additional 6 months in bottle, the Marengo Barolo Brunate is ready to go! You’ll find aromas of fruit, black cherry and some spices. The wine is full body, with silky but persistent tannins. Goes well with meat and cheese.
